QMST Direction is actively participating in various education initiatives at Skoltech.
MSc Education Program "Photonics and Quantum Materials"
In collaboration with other CPQM faculty, our Direction is responsible for the MSc Education Program in Photonics and Quantum Materials (PQM). The PQM program combines a significant number of basic scientific courses with numerous application-oriented disciplines. The aim of the program is to provide knowledge and lab expertise in photonics, condensed matter, quantum physics, nano-electronics and bio-photonics, as well as to prepare students to apply fundamental science and engineering approaches to higher-level research and industrial tasks. The curriculum covers the main topics in optics and condensed matter physics. The PQM program is implemented in a network form with the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Educational Program "Quantum Nanostructures, Materials and Devices" responsible for courses in physics of quantum nano-structures, materials and devices, and Chair "Nano-optics and Spectroscopy", responsible for courses in spectroscopy and quantum optics).
